2. That is an Odd - Looking Trout:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brook_trout

The brook trout (Salvelinus fontinalis) is a species of freshwater fish in the salmon family Salmonidae. It is native to Eastern North America in the United States and Canada, but has been introduced elsewhere in North America and to other continents. In parts of its range, it is also known as the eastern brook trout, speckled trout, brook charr, squaretail, or mud trout, among others. A potamodromous population in Lake Superior is known as coaster trout or, simply, as coasters. The brook trout is the state fish of nine states: Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Virginia, and West Virginia, and the Provincial Fish of Nova Scotia in Canada.

Honestly, I can't find any data or maps that show this fish, the Speckled Trout, is found in Louisiana.

6. my roofer is looking for fishers

 

He has a boat he takes out on Lake Erie and mostly just wants the company, for the cost of the fuel for an afternoon. The Lake Erie specialty here is perch, which is apparently quite good if you like that sort of thing. The dude and I don't eat fish, so won't be fishing for any, but we're going to get roofer guy to take us out for a morning occasionally just to be on the water.

You're welcome to join us! I'd say, if you want to get away from the heat of the summer, but it's probably going to be damned hot (and hellishly humid) here anyway.

If you like blackflies, a cousin of mine owns a fly-in hunting and fishing camp up in Northern Ontario ...

8. I'm not ordinarily squeamish about things, but

I would hesitate to eat that thing. Especially if I had caught other fish like the article said.
